Terming her experience of playing golf as an eye opener, Rabia said, “It was first time that I saw golf being played in front of me and then myself getting involved in play. It was new experience and it also opened my eyes that golf is not as simple as it looks on Television. It involves more than just hitting a ball. I loved it and would like to come here again and play,” said Rabia from Pulwama.
Prominent Event Manager, Danish Aman said they would try to conduct more such events in coming time.
